Controversy at the Rellys for second consecutive year
For the second year in a row, controversy reigns at the Relly Awards, as Regis Philbin
again is shut out in the "Best Regis" category - again at the hands of a "Saturday Night
Live" veteran. This year, comedian and actor Jimmy Fallon took home the prestigious
"Best Regis" Golden Stool.|
Philbin accepted the award on behalf of the absent Fallon, but shocked the
Relly audience by reading a purported letter from Fallon, essentially passing
the award to Philbin. The document later was revealed to be a fraud. After
the broadcast, Philbin asserted that "Next year will be the year that regis is
In another shocking twist, porcine princess Miss Piggy eked out a win in
the "Best Non-Human Guest" category, triumphing over such competition as
Mariah Carey's dog Jack, "Star Wars" superstar Chewbacca and Barney the Purple
Dinosaur. Singing superstar Carey attempted to call in during the Relly
taping to express her disappointment over Jack being passed over in favor of
the popular pig.
Another unhappy nominee was talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who lost the
"Best New Co-Host" Relly to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest. Kimmel is
rumored to be readying a rebuttal for air on tonight's "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
Philbin and fellow host Kelly Ripa were the biggest winners on Friday, and
the only nominees to walk away with multiple Golden Stools (two and three,
respectively), while cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" won in the "Funniest
Guest" category. "American Idol's" Bo Bice accepted his "Best Reality Guest"
award live via satellite from Nashville, and Backstreet Boys Kevin Richardson,
AJ McLean and Howie Dorough checked in from Los Angeles to receive their Relly
for "Favorite Music Guest".

Album sales and number one albums are so relative. For instance, Sia sold 30,000 copies and she tops Billboard. Mariah sold more then that and lands a number 3. So, the question is, was Sia a hit because she topped the chart or was it a flop because she sold less?

Im with you. But I don't think Mariah's problem isn't promotion, we saw what happened to JLo. It's a problem with mentality. Today's music listeners are very impressive and brain washed young people that do know a Michael Jackson, a Chet Baker, a Etta James and believe some new acts are the bomb. I accept we must embrace progress and change but I a... read more
